Arcade Fire, "The Suburbs"

The title track from Arcade Fire's new disc is my new theme song: Bittersweet and melancholy with a deceptively upbeat tempo - it gets me every time.


Late Night Slice

I love everything about the Short North pizza truck: the parking lot camaraderie at 2 a.m., the kitschy movies projected on the neighbor's brick wall, the hot and garlicky pies. Great street food is one of the most exciting recent developments in Columbus dining, and Late Night Slice is one of the best.


Mouton

I have nothing but respect for anyone who respects classic cocktails, and this new Short North bar does it right. Moscow Mule with fresh lime and local Oyo vodka? Why yes, I will have another.


"Boardwalk Empire"

I re-subscribed to HBO just for you, Martin Scorsese, and you didn't disappoint. The period potboiler set on the original Jersey Shore is gorgeous - it's like porn for art direction nerds - and promises to reach the dramatic heights of a certain other HBO mob series from the Garden State.


Rocktober

I've been waiting 334 days for The Best Month of the Year! Fall colors, autumn flavors, black leather jacket weather, Halloween. Plus, a usually stellar month of music will be even better this year with Alive's first Rocktoberfest on Oct. 2.
